Mermaid with Trident

In the exhibition about Jorge Amado, an important brazilian literature writer, one can find various representations of this mytical orisha world.  There’s a part destined to all of his translated books, and one specifically about the novel Dead Sea (Mar Morto).  This is a masterpiece when it comes to Yemanja and her relationship with the people from the shore of Bahia.  I find this book cover interesting because there is no verbal information; there’s only the presence of this mermaid, which is black and white, and is holding a trident.
